History, Heritage & Venue & Tours

Founder of Supernatural Events, Stephen Mercer, is a trained Blackpool Heritage Champion and as well as hosting the ghost tours, walks and investigations he also presents history, heritage and venue tours around Blackpool and at some of the town’s most important buildings and attractions.

Winter Gardens Blackpool Venue Tours

In 2021 Stephen was asked to host the Venue Tours at Blackpool's famous Winter Gardens.

These daytime tours offer a unique insight into the fascinating building, its halls, theatres, rooms and foyers, and the many events it has hosted over the years.

They are one of the best ways to relive the history of the venue and visit backstage areas not often open to the public. Tours will allow you to visit backstage of the Opera House and a chance to tread the boards so many famous faces have walked on before. The grandeur of the Empress Ballroom will be explored whilst the often-overlooked Spanish Suites will offer a unique insight into Blackpool’s largest entertainment venue*.

Stephen will give you the chance to explore and learn more about the extensive history of the Winter Gardens Blackpool.

The 2-hour Venue Tour includes a tea or coffee in the Mazzei Cafe following the tour with upgrade options available.
